    Andy Brown and Darren Lunn presented work at the International Cross-Disciplinary Conference on Web Accessibility (W4A).

    Andy Brown's presentation, entitled "Audio Presentation of Auto-Suggest Lists", co-authored with Caroline Jay, and Simon Harper describes a 'thin slice' through the SASWAT project. The project aims to base non-visual presentation on an understanding of how sighted users interact with information. This paper examines how sighted users interact with auto-suggest lists, and finds that suggestions are almost universally attended to. Attention is, however, given more to the top three suggestions than those lower down the list. A non-visual implementation is proposed, and contrasted with current solutions.

    Darren Lunn's presentation, "Combining SADIe and AxsJAX to Improve the Accessibility of Web Content" co-authored with Simon Harper, and Sean Bechhofer describes how the SADIe transcoder can be combined with the AxsJAX framework to improve Web content accessibility. Such an approach allows users to access static content using a consistent set of key presses in a manner akin to an online application. This demonstrates the flexibility of the SADIe approach of annotating Cascading Style Sheet elements and supports the use of SADIe as a lightweight method for allowing Web designers to make use of AxsJAX without requiring knowledge of the underlying AxsJAX technologies.
